Friday, December 23rd:  Closed at 12pm

Monday, December 26th:  Closed

Monday, January 2nd:  Closed

The holidays are a time of year full of celebration with friends, family and co-workers. As your office winds down for the holidays, make sure you’re keeping some safety tips in mind to minimize your risks.

Slippery Stepping

High foot traffic in and out of the office during snowy weather creates hazardous puddles in hallways and entrance ways. Assign one person or create a rotational schedule to make sure the floors are dry and safe.

Stair Safety

Make sure handrails are installed along all staircases, both indoor and outdoor regardless of the number of steps. Stairs pose a risk for slips, as slips on stairs can cause more damage then a slip on flat ground. Ensure staircases are included in the floor cleaning rotation.

Entrances

Make sure that all other entrances to the facility like rear entrances, windows, hatches and vents are secured. Roof ladders and stairs should have gates or guards installed.

Smoke and CO2 Detectors

If your office will be closed for a prolonged time, be sure to test smoke and CO2 detectors before closing shop. The last thing you want on your well-deserved vacation is an interruption from work!

The holidays are always filled with decorating, cooking and entertaining friends and family. Despite the fun and festivities, it's important to make safety a top priority throughout this busy time of year.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, Wynward Insurance has asked its employees across Canada to nominate a deserving not-for-profit or charitable organization in their communities to receive a $500 donation for the good works they perform.

Our Winnipeg head office is in celebration mode after we reached our goal of 100% participation in our 5th annual United Way Winnipeg Workplace Campaign!
